What will you find besides the avant garde Versace and Sonia Rykiel boutiques at this eclectic neighbourhood? A church of course. And not just any church, the Saint Sulpice church is this mammoth and gorgeous building, only a little smaller than it’s more famous cousin Notre Dame, made famous in the novel Da Vinci Code. The church is known for its massive Cavaille-Coll organ that is perhaps the most impressive instrument of the romantic French symphonic era and is as big as its tradition of hosting talented organists. The organ has the most unparalleled acoustics and sounds that stir every string of your heart. Also, don’t forget to look out Eugene Delacroix murals, namely Jacob wrestling with the Angel.

  • Noted as one of the largest churches in Paris, this is a must visit while in St Germain. Two towers and a beautiful fountain frame the outside. Inside, there is a subdued opulence and aged beauty that many will enjoy while walking around.

  • Less known than the Notre Dame (despite being featured in the Da Vinci Code), but IMO equally astonishing. Incredibly large, beautiful artwork and not overcrowded with tourists

  • The Rose Line in Da Vinci Code, you will find in this chapel

  • Cool church known for its organ among non-religious travelers. I'd been here before I'd seen this, but have since learned Rick Steves had this featured in his video about Paris. It's also right next to one of my favorite bakeries in Paris.

  • I stumbled across this church after visiting the Luxembourg Gardens and it absolutely blew my mind. The structure's size is absolutely incredible. Inside the various alters have such beautiful artwork and it's a wonderful place to pray.
